Barielle Brilliant Colors Collection



Even though summer's almost over, doesn't mean you should put away the bright polish just yet!  Here's Barielle Brilliant Collection to celebrate the last few days of August.

Head of the Class Green
While this bright jade creme is absolutely stunning -- and I mean insanely stunning, it even surprised me! -- this polish is absolutely not worth the gorgeousness.  I wouldn't say that lightly except for the fact that Head of the Class Green stains like a mother.  I had read other reviews that casually mentioned the staining, but let me be the voice of drama and seriously warm those fairer skinned girls to avoid, avoid, avoid.  This stained my cuticles, fingertips, and everything the cotton with acetone touched with a horrible green tinge.  Such a shame though, it's really that beautiful.  Sigh.

Magna Cum Laude Turquoise
Now here's a stunner that is worth the staining, since it's not nearly as infectious as its green counterpart.  Magna Cum Laude Turquoise is less turquoise and more a bright sky blue that leans aqua.  This color is beyond beautiful and applies like a dream in 2 coats.

High Marks Purple
I can honestly say that my swatch does not do this deep plum justice.  In fact, this swatch is deceiving, allowing High Marks Purple to appear brighter than it is in real life.  I don't know why this is in a summer collection because this warm-toned purple is a fabulous choice for fall.  I loved wearing this and am sorry that I just couldn't capture how lovely it is.  2 coats.

Straight A Coral
Not quite a coral, this nearly neon red creme is really fantastic.  I just love how happy and bright this is against my skin tone!  A definite must-have for red lovers.  2 coats here too.

Smarty Pants Pink
A Barbie doll pink creme, Smarty Pants Pink is a tad brighter than this is real life.  Not the most unique of shades but a great formula and applied easily in 3 coats.
